Local director makes bad look good

As much as people love describing Ed Wood’s goofy 1959 classic, Plan 9 From Outer Space, as THE worst science fiction film of all time, Vic Savage’s decidedly less charming The Creeping Terror, released five years later, was far worse.

So it’s only fitting that both directors’ exploits have generated their own twisted biopics.

First came Tim Burton's Ed Wood. Now comes local writer/director Peter Schuermann’s The Creep Behind the Camera, which was released today through numerous video-on-demand and pay-per-view services, including Comcast, DirecTV and The Dish.

Schuermann’s film began making the rounds on the festival circuit last fall, earning praise from the likes of Gremlins director Joe Dante and the creators of Mystery Science Theatre 3000.

In fact, later this month, Shout Factory TV will be including an extended trailer for The Creep Behind the Camera as bonus material on its release of the MST3K’s “Creeping Terror” episode.

Meanwhile, you can get your very own high-definition version of the film through iTunes here. You'll also find an Indy interview with the director here.
